Information about the Registration Process
Our online registration will not close once the program is full. We will update the statuses (provided below) as programs fill. However, if any of our programs fill up after hours, we will not be able to update the website until the following business day. It is important to remember that registrations are time-stamped when they are submitted and enrollments are first-come, first-served. If registration overfills while the club is closed, we will notify parents
Once you've completed the online forms, your child(ren)'s place will only be be held for 7 calendar days. Registration will only be completed once we've received the three items outlined below in the "Important Note!!" Section.
Additional information on our Programs can be found in our Parent Handbook.
If you receive subsidy, make sure to have your confirmation number from Alberta Human Services and the pre-approved subsidy amount ready. You'll be asked for that information when registering.
If you decide to cancel prior to September, cancellations must be made in writing 30 days in advance. With 30 days’ notice, a refund (less $50 administration fee) will be issued. Additional details are provided in the Parent Handbook or Cancellation Policy.
Additional information can be found on our Online Registration FAQ Sheet!
BGC Cochrane & Area is proud to offer transportation to and from schools within Cochrane. Some of Rockyview Schools' bus routes pass by the Club, where our Staff members will meet the children and bring them back to the club. For schools that do not offer bus service to downtown Cochrane (Sunset, Fireside, etc.), we offer transportation for an additional fee of $85/one way and $140/to and from location
After completing the online forms, you will have 7 calendar days (from the date you complete the OSC Registration Form) to submit a $50 deposit and Pre-Authorized Payment Form.
1. Complete the Pre-Authorized Debit Form (one form can be completed for multiple children)
2. Provide a void cheque with the Pre-Authorized Debit Form
3. A $50 cheque or email transfer (can be sent to email@example.com with a message to detail the fee being paid and for which child)
Financial Assistance Options
Alberta Child Care Subsidy
Because we are a licensed and accredited child care provider, our members can receive financial assistance through Alberta's Child Care Subsidy Program. Rates are dependent on the program your child is registered for, and the number of hours/month your child attends. The maximum rates of subsidy are provided on their website. Please complete the subsidy application before registering your child. Please note that Transportation is not covered by subsidy.
Don't forget: our Summer Camps are also eligible for subsidy assistance!
BGC Cochrane & Area provides partial or full sponsorships for families. For more information on the program, go to the BGCCA Sponsorship page. Sponsorships may cover transportation fees. Please speak with the Executive Director at 403-981-2020 ext 222.
